Quadrature Oriented Reflectors, QOR technology based antenna systems are the leading-edge systems for truly global operations. QOR technology facilitates full flexibility of operation on C and Ku-band networks and requires minimal manual intervention while switching from C-band circular to C-band linear, A Pol to B Pol, or from C-band to Ku-band. The 9711 QOR system combines a 2.4m C-band antenna with a 1.2m Kuband antenna on the same pedestal. In addition, the C-band antenna utilizes a feed that combines both circular and linear operation, all in one product. Theuser can switch from C-band to Ku-band with a simple push of a button. The software calculates the antenna’s offset values and targets according to the user’s preferences. The 9711 QOR antenna operates on C-band A Pol, C-band B Pol, C-band linear, Ku-band Cross Pol, and Ku-band Copol. This eliminates the need to climb into the Radome to change the feed. The switch over from one network to another can be accomplished in less than one minute. The 9711 QOR system is fully compatible with OpenAmip and ABS technology. By combining multiple option files in a single modem, the user can make near seamless transitions from C-band circular A Pol to B Pol, C-band linear, and Ku-band satellites. The 9711 Technology uses Generation 2 electronics in the pedestal control unit. This is the same electronics used on XX09MK2 and XX10 series antenna systems, eliminating the need for an external level cage, and combines the motor driver assembly which performs diagnostics and improves troubleshooting capabilities on all 3 axes. QOR technology eliminates the need for a second antenna on the vessel. The QOR based antenna systems provides a significant productivity improvement and an all-in-one communication solution for truly global operation.
